Expert Advice


A person who is resident outside India, that includes an NRI, a PIO or a foreign national of non-Indian origin purchase agricultural land/plantation/farm house in India. Although a private limited company can buy agricultural land for carrying on agricultural activities but subject to provisions of articles of association and memorandum of association. NRI being a shareholder of the company will not make a difference as the company is a separate legal entity. Also it is advisable to contact a local lawyer where the property is situated to understand local laws.
